The previously unknown fact to take away from this nearly 10-minute documentary about Oakland’s erotic hip-pop group Hottub is that the band divides its time between humping stage monitors in mismatching neon-colored clothing and paying the bills with jobs at a Verizon retail store and a public interest law office. This documentary captures the women of the band’s adoration for their city, following them through the streets of Oakland to choice drug stores, delis and downtown historical venues. On the topic of Oakland’s cultural revival, one of the ladies comments: “it’s kind of like Oakland was on crack for 23 years, and now it finally went and got sober and now it’s starting its life again.”
